6:12 pm
reasons am one t reminded people of questions they had about the way hillary runs her affairs. questions that have been there for a long time. and the other problem is that it gives a realtime fresh example of some of the problems people have had with the question of whether she's honest and trust worthy. because her answers an her campaign's answers are just at odds with the report from the inspector general. this is not a political opponent, this is an inspector general for the state department. and that disconnect reexas rates-- reexacerbates an ongoing problem for her. >> quijano: john dikerson in washington, thank you. two gunmen armed with automatic rifles opened fire on a street in houston today killing at least one person in his car. one of the suspects was killed in a shootout with police. the second was wounded and taken to the hospital. two officers and at least three other people were also injured. the motive for the shootings is under investigation. chicago has seen an alarming spike in gun violence this weekend. by sunday morning at least 40 people had been shot resulting in at least four deaths.

6:14 pm
pen. >> the boy does not appear to scream or panic. zoo officials removed two female professions from the enclosure but did not approach the gorilla for at least ten minutes. eventually zoo president thane mayard said the 400 pound gorilla became violent. >> it seems very much by our dangerous animal response team to be a life threatening situation. so the choice was made to put down or shoot him. >> reporter: the zoo say its team chose not to tranquilize the gorilla because the animal was agitated and it would have taken too long to save pim. >> we don't wants to be in a situation where they have to be killed. >> animal activists have created online petitions and facebook pages like justice for heramwe. many endangered he was put down. others want the boy's mother to face child endangerment charges. people for the ethical treatment of animals or peta released a statement saying the gorilla enclosure should have been surrounded by a secondary
